The LIFE TEAM Business Results

Posted by Orrin Woodward on December 2, 2011

One of the points that I love about free enterprise is the ability to serve customers and produce results. Businesses thrive when the customers needs are satisfied.  All the rhetoric for a business is worthless if the customers are not being served. Similarly, all the rhetoric against a business is worthless if the customers are being served.

The LIFE TEAM is passing the customer’s test. In fact, based upon the first month’s data, LIFE has received a huge validation of its business plan. From the customer’s perspective, there is finally a company that provides world-class monthly leadership materials at a price that anyone can afford, especially with its three for free program.

The TEAM community has been serving leadership communities in network marketing since 1999. As part of our training, we created a CD of the week program, which quickly established us as the top community building organization in the US market. By 2000, we were routinely hosting major functions with thousands of people in attendance. Indeed, many of the top leaders within network marketing have benchmarked our processes and systems to improve the leadership culture within their own communities.

However, even with this solid foundation, nothing could have prepared me for LIFE’s launch. In its first 30 days, LIFE added over 4,000 new leadership subscribers! I’m not talking about sign-ups here, I am referring to people who signed up for our monthly subscription program. Let me explain the magnitude of these numbers. The LIFE business, in other words, has added more new CD and book subscribers in its first month than the TEAM community has ever added in its best year!

Remember the saying, “In God we trust, all others must have data?” The above data confirms something the LIFE founders believed in their hearts – that high-quality, low priced, monthly leadership information is a huge customer need in this intensely competitive marketplace.

However, don’t take my word for it. Try the products for yourself. Over 800 customers, people not involved in building the LIFE business, are enjoying the leadership information. Most of these customers sold themselves by listening to the leadership materials, enjoying the product and eventually requested a monthly subscription. That is the beauty of the model, members do not have to convince customers against their wills. Instead, members only have to provide the customers an opportunity to hear the life-changing information for themselves.

I want to congratulate all of the new pin winners for the month. There are so many amazing stories of growth and depth happening across the LIFE TEAM communities. With so much growth, there are more people receiving checks and progressing towards their dreams this month than ever before in the history of the TEAM’s community building endeavors. This can only happen when opportunity and preparedness meet.

One success story that I have witnessed first hand is my yacht captain, Bill Howard. He has been part of the TEAM community since 2005. In that time, he read and listened, changing himself from the inside out. Many laughed at him, thinking he was crazy to believe that he could develop into a leader of a community. However, Bill understood that private achievements precede public ones and even though he wasn’t making big money, he was making big changes. In other words, Bill got himself right; the LIFE TEAM business got the opportunity right; and success was the result. Bill powered over the 50% level in his first month of LIFE, which means his bonus check will be nearly ten times higher than any check he has received in his network marketing career. Oh, and by the way, he did this completely without my day to day involvement. In fact, I didn’t show a single plan for him, as he was fully capable of  building his own business thanks to the leadership training. All I can say is congratulations to a job well done!

In life, people are either part of the solution or part of the problem. The LIFE Founders have vowed to be part of the solution. Although governments think they can solve people’s problems by offering handouts, God utilizes a different method. God allows us to get in over our heads, so that He can teach us how to swim by faith. Unfortunately, many times this process is interrupted by well-intentioned people who throw life-jackets in the middle of God’s swimming lessons. I refused to throw Captain Bill Howard a life-jacket, for I knew that God was in the process of developing another champion swimmer. Captain Bill’s leadership community never threw him a lifejacket, for he was capable of swimming, but they did provide him with the encouragement, CDs, and books that changed his thinking, and subsequently, his life.

Don’t misread me, I am all for saving a drowning person. However, more often than not, we save a person who is fully capable of swimming with the right training. When we do this, we not only do not help, but are actually taking away a person’s dignity and respect, communicating to them that they are not capable of swimming without us. How can a person become a producer in society when he hasn’t developed the ability to swim on his own? LIFE is teaching the leadership skills needed to let go of the life-jackets and start to swim. Western Civilization needs men and women who will swim against the currents of despair currently sinking our society. LIFE is our opportunity to restore our great countries, offering a hand-up, not a handout.

The LIFE business has a goal to change the world one person at a time. We understand that no change is possible until a person is ready. Our goal then, is to have all the life-changing information ready when he or she is ready. Are you ready to confront the issues in your life and grow into the leader you deserve to be? If so, then perhaps the LIFE TEAM is worth checking out. Listen to the CDs and read the books for yourself. This may be the opportunity you have been praying for. Sincerely, Orrin Woodward

    It is truly an honor to find myself associated with the LIFE Team! Orrin, your book RESOLVED 13 Resolutions for LIFE is incredible. Just the finance chapter alone is worth it’s weight in gold.

    If it hadn’t been for the Team community I may have lived a life of despair, being exploited by many businesses which prey on the weakness of the lower classes.
    I thankfully had become tired of being sick and tired of the lack of purpose I had been feeling deep in my soul. I knew there had to be a better way.
    Being a hungry student of the LIFE training system has changed my life, both personally and professionally.
    Thank you to all of the LIFE founders for your persistence, your dreams, and your tenacity to impact the lives of people who want to make a difference. We are the group who is going to cause the tipping point at which the American culture is restored. RESOLVED!

    Sincerely,

    John R Oliva

    This is very exciting and LIFE is truly the hope for the future of the next generation! I like the analogy of the life jacket and God giving swimming lessons. The way parents provide for their children is reflected in the way governments take care of their people – giving them life-jackets instead of teaching them to swim. Our generation has learned to reach out for something external to us, the fast solution, one that doesn’t commit us to our future, that doesn’t make us responsible individuals and a productive member of society. The LIFE business, Instead, teaches us to learn to swim – to learn the lessons of being responsible and productive members of society, to invest in ourselves, become part of the solution, Thanks, Orrin, for making LIFE available to the masses, for showing us the way and helping us see the future greater than just our own. God bless!

    LIFE is the life jacket we need when we are not able to swim in those struggles! This system teaches how to get out from under circumstances and debilitating struggles while building strong relationships. People pray for something more out of life, and this is IT! I love the analogy of the life jacket too, never taking mine off!

    • April, good stuff! The LIFE community can temporarily hold you up until you learn to swim on your own. When you can swim, you can pay the favor forward by teaching someone else to do the same! God Bless, Orrin

    Orrin thanks for the great post and your thoughts. The Life Team has the data of the results and they are speaking loud and clear! This is what our country needs, someone spreading truth. I firmly believe the Life Team will be a house hold name and will develop true leaders in the world.

    God Bless

    Orrin,
    This is wonderful! 1st month and already making a huge difference! I can’t wait to go and start my Life Team in Kenya as well
    Thank you for giving us all the opportunity!

  8. Orrin, great post!! Thanks for sharing!! We are only 30 days into this!!!! I can’t wait for the future!!

    On a side note, I have been with Team for 10 years now and I have always respected my father highly. You were able to meet him one time in the past at a church event. He has always been impressed with you and your leadership, but he could never get on board with some of the products we represented in the past. He is a COO of a large mechanical heating and cooling company in Pontiac, MI with 200+ employees. I sat down last week and showed him the new LIFE plan and our customer subscriptions; he actually liked what he saw!! My dad runs 4 other states as well with his company and manages over 1000+ employees…. For the first time in my networking career I might actually be in business with my Dad!!

    FIRED UP!!! I wouldn’t mind getting paid 50% on potentially hundreds of customers each month. Thank you for having the vision and the fortitude to pursue your dreams, in the process you are going to help hundreds, thousands, and millions of other people reach their dreams as well.

    God bless,
    Neal D. Ruffner

    I’ve heard you say, change is inevitable, but growth is optional. A lot of the Team members are choosing to grow and in time, change the world. Thanks for your choice to lead millions of people! And by the way – I just saw Oliver DeMille’s top 5 books of the year – your book Resolved: 13 Resolutions for Life is NUMBER ONE! How great is that?!

  10. Orrin,

    Your article is spot on! I see others changing as well, not just financially but also personally by healed relationships and increased confidence.

    The material is first class and filled full of useful content.

  11. Hi Orrin: Great article! With results like this after the first month, I can’t wait to see the results after the first year and beyond…fired up! Thanks for all you and the PC do for us…it is greatly appreciated.

    Orrin,
    We are so excited to be a part of a group of people that will remain committed to the cause of restoring our foundational principles. Our children and grandchildren did not creat this mess we are in, and they are worthy of every effort we all put forward to provide a free America and Canada for their future. I’m told teh AGO Series Subscription grew 4 tiems in our first month of LIFE.
    As you have said, leadership is for everyone.. Lets restore Americas HOPE with LIFE!!
    GOD Bless you my friend

    Orrin,

    I am anxiously waiting for the next subscription. More than that, many on my teams and everyones team that never before participated in the leadership training beyond the basic system are now getting the information that all the leaders were tapping into. What will happen to our Community when the education level increases by such a grand scale. I can hardly wait to see the results. Thanks again

  14. Orrin,
    I am so excited to share this article with a team member. Just the other day, I asked him the Tim Marks question “what do you want to get out of this thing?” his reply made all of my alarms go off in my head and my heart, and I was at a loss for words. He said “I want to be able to provide more for my kids, so they can have it easier than we did. I don’t want them to have to go through what we went through.”
    Isn’t this everywhere? I meet individuals that I totally respect, and look up to, until I meet their children, then, respect ightly fades. Generations of this cycle will truly amplify the results of this broken thinking.
    Thank you for leading us to the light of truth. Thank you for the swimming lessons. I’m sure, that continuing on this path, I will soon be swimming marathons.
    God Bless,
    Robby
